Our first year building a farm

We’ve had a great first year. Here are some of the moments. A big thank you to everybody who helped us, community support has been incredible!

 

Besides growing nutritious food for people while building an organic farm and supporting farmers, we are working adapting a low-input, low tech,  climate friendly method of growing staple food crops in a dry climate. Our goal is to grow food using only mineral dust as fertilizer, using mainly human, solar, and animal power.

This method involves growing a winter cover crop, roller crimping it, and seeding or transplanting directly into it.

Update to come.
